The role played from intestinal microbiota on the onset and on the evolution of inflammatory bowel diseases has been and is widely investigated during the last two decades. Also, with the techniques most recently applied, however, no final result seems to be reached and the uncertainty rises between gastroenterologists and general practitioners also in the classification of the disease.
